Instead of waiting on your travel friends, now is the time to complete your 2019 travel resolutions.

With safety in mind, here are the best places to travel for the rest of 2019, according to Travel + Leisure.

City Escape In Seoul, South Korea

South Korea is often overlooked by Japan but South Korea’s capital city delivers in terms of culture and food.

If nothing else, a trip to South Korea’s famous Myeongdong Night Market is a must. With over 200 vendors, the outdoor street market is the biggest food market in Seoul.

Local Art Immersion on Lake Atitlán, Guatemala

According to Travel + Leisure, Guatemala’s Casa Palopó hotel is perfect for solo travelers who want the best of both worlds of culture and adventure.


There are seven spacious rooms that uniquely decorated inside Casa Palopó that showcases contemporary and indigenous Guatemalan artwork to evoke the country’s heritage.

Outside of Lake Atitlán, there’s a ceramic-centric village where solo travelers can witness the Pintando Santa Catarina Project up close, a philanthropic initiative that brings locals and visitors together for a great cause.

Hike Up Machu Picchu in Peru

As one of Seven Wonders of The World, making the trek up Machu Picchu is a dream for many travelers.

Situated in the Andes Mountains above the Urubamba River valley, Machu Picchu is a cultural and natural area inscribed on Unesco’s World Heritage List.

This Incan city of sparkling granite is thought by scholars to have been a sacred archaeological center for the nearby Incan capital of Cusco.

Enjoy Island Life on Malta

If you’re looking for a solo escape to Mediterranean waters, Travel + Leisure recommends skipping Mykonos and head to Malta instead.

Why? Malta may be small in size but the island offers everything you want out of a Mediterranean vacation, including crystal blue waters; a charming, historic vibe; and cuisine that’s a perfect melange of Italy, Greece, and the Maghreb influences.
